和一个旅行女孩约会吧!
中文翻译:Reddy Ting Ho



Date a girl who travels. Date a girl who would rather save up for out of town trips or day trips than buy new shoes or clothes. She may not look like a fashion plate, but behind that tanned and freckled face from all the days out in the sun, lies a mind that can take you places and an open heart that will take you for what you are, not for what you can be.
和一个旅行女孩约会吧。这个女孩,宁愿把钱存下来当作旅行基金,也不会花在无谓的新衣服。她看起来可能不是个时尚辣妹,但在那张久经日晒的小麦色脸庞后,藏著一颗能带你去任何地方,并且能欣赏你最真实个性的心。

Date a girl who travels. You’ll recognize her by the backpack she always carries. She won’t be carrying a dainty handbag; where will she put her travel journal, her pens, and the LED flashlight that’s always attached to her bag’s zipper? In a small purse, how can she bring the small coil of travel string, the wet tissues, the box of cracker, and the bottle of water she’s always ready with, just in case something happens and she can’t go home yet? Yes, a girl who travels knows that anytime, anything can happen and she just has to be prepared with it. Nothing takes her by surprise; she takes everything with equanimity, knowing that such things are always a part of life. She’s reliable and dependable, traits that she’s learned while on the road.
和一个旅行女孩约会吧。你可以一眼就从那永不离身的背包认出她。并非一个无法装载旅行日志、笔、手电筒的精致小提包,那样的小包包怎么能装下旅行绳、湿毛 巾、干粮、和一瓶紧急备用的水呢?没错,一个旅行女孩知道随时都有可能发生无法预料的事,所以她会永远保持在准备好的状态。没有什么事能吓到她,她永远可以泰然处之从容面对,知道这就是人生。她是值得信赖依靠的,这是她从旅途中学到的事。






You’ll also recognize a girl who travels by the fact that she’s always amazed at the world around her, no matter if she’s in her home town or in a place that’s totally new. She sees beauty all around her, not just the ones featured in travel guides or shown in postcards. A girl who travels has developed a deeper appreciation for life. She won’t judge you, or pressure you to do things you don’t want to do. She knows too much about the importance of identity and self-efficacy, and she will appreciate all the more if you won’t pretend to be who you’re not.
你也可以从旅行女孩那不管是在家乡或是一个陌生城镇,却总能对她周遭事物充满兴趣的特质认出她。她可以发觉各式美丽事物,而不只是旅行指南或明信片上的热门景点。一个旅行女孩会对生命由衷的欣赏,她不会武断地评论你,也不会逼你做不情愿的事。她清楚的知道自我肯定及认同的重要,如果你不矫揉造作,她会对你加倍青睐。

You can make mistakes with a girl who travels, and you can also be as idiosyncratic as you can be. Trust me, she has been so much worse in her travels, and knows firsthand the vagaries of human nature.
你可以对一个旅行女孩说谎,犯错也没有关系,你可以做最真实的自己。别担心,她在旅途中碰过更糟的事,而且对变化莫测的人性也有深刻的认识。






Date a girl who travels, because when you’re with her, you’ll realize that even though she’s napped at a temple in Angkor Wat, went boating down the Mekong Delta, ran by the streets of Saigon, or went skinny-dipping in the caves in the Philippines , she still retains that humility that is the mark of a real traveler. She knows she’s been to a lot of places, but she’s humbled by the fact that the world is still a big place and she’s only seen a small part of it. Seeing this in her can make you feel all right with yourself too; there’s no need for you to do more, to be more. What you are is enough.

When you meet a girl who travels, ask her where she’s been and what she’s going to do next. She will appreciate your interest, and if you’re lucky, she may even invite you to join her. When she does, do. Nothing bonds people better than traveling. On your trips, you will both see each other’s best and worst characteristics, and you can then decide whether she’s worth fighting for.
当你认识一个旅行女孩,问问她去过哪里、下一个旅行地点是哪里,她会很欣赏你的用心。够幸运的话,说不定她还会约你结伴同行。如果她开口,就跟她一起去吧。没有一件事能比旅行更能拉近人与人之间的关系,在旅程中,你们会发现彼此的优点和缺点,你也可以因此决定她是不是个值得的对象。






It’s easy enough to date a girl who travels. She won’t want expensive gifts; you can buy her (or both of you) cheap tickets to Thailand for the weekend, and she’ll be more than happy to take you to the longest wooden bridge in the country. You don’t even have to go overseas; you can take her out on day trips, caving or hiking, or treat her to a full body massage.
You can also buy her the little things that she keeps forgetting to buy for herself; that carabiner that will attach her backpack to her seat so that she will feel easier about sleeping on her bus trip, or a backpack cover, a small alarm clock, a money belt, or maybe another sarong that will replace the one she lost in China.
和一个旅行女孩约会很简单。她不渴求昂贵的礼物,你可以买张飞往泰国渡周末的廉价机票给她或是来一趟双人之旅,她会带你去看世界上最长的木桥;你们甚至不用出国,你可以带她去个洞穴探险或爬山的一日小旅行,或是让她享受一套全身按摩。你也可以送她一些她总是忘记买的小东西。那条能绑住她的背包和座椅的链条, 让她能在巴士旅途中睡个好觉;一个背包套、小闹钟、可以藏钱的腰带、或是一条新沙龙来代替她在中国遗失那条。

She won’t mind if you get lost on your way to a date. She knows that oftentimes, the journey is more important than the destination. She will help you see the lighter side of things. She’ll walk along with you, not behind you, pointing out the interesting bits of things you’ll see on the way. Before long, you’ll realize that yes, the journey has been more memorable than the destination that you’ve planned to take her to.
一个旅行女孩不介意你约会时迷路,她知道多数时候旅行的过程比结果更重要。她会让看到事情的光明面,走在你身旁而不是你后方,为你指出一路上将看到的趣事。不用多久你就会真的了解,和她一起寻找的过程其实比你要带她去的目的地更让你记忆深刻。






Is a girl who travels worth it? Yes, she is. So when you find her, keep her. Don’t lose her with your insecurities and doubts. Because when she says she loves you, she really does. After all, she’s seen so many things, met so many people, and if she had chosen you, better grab that opportunity and thank the gods that you were lucky enough she’s chosen you and not that bloke she met while watching the sun rise in Angkor Wat, or while whitewater rafting in the Padas Gorge in Sabah. If she says she loves you, she must have seen something in you, something that can always call her back from her travels, something that can anchor her to the world in the way that she wants to after weeks and months of being on the road.
一个旅行女孩值得你追求吗?是的,她值得。所以当你碰上她时,请好好珍惜她。不要因为你的不安全感或怀疑而放手,因为当她说她爱你,那绝对千真万确。毕竟她 看过那么多各式事物,认识了那么多不同的人;如果她选择了你,请好好把握这个机会,并感谢老天她选择的是你,而不是那个她在吴哥窟并肩看夕阳的男孩,或她在沙巴巴达士泛舟的同伴。如果她说她爱你,表示她一定有发现你的某些特别之处;一些能让她回忆起过去旅行的小细节,一个能让她在四处漂荡好几个月后可以停泊的港湾。






Date a girl who travels. Make her feel safe, warm, and secure. Make her believe that no matter where she goes, and however long she’s gone, you’ll always be there for her, the one that she can call home.
和一个旅行女孩约会吧。给她安心和温暖,让她相信无论她去到哪里,或是离开了多久,你都会在那个她能当作「家」的地方等待她。

Find a girl who travels. Date her, love her, and marry her, and your world will never be the same again.
找一个旅行女孩,和她约会,真爱她,让她成为你的妻子。你的世界,将会因此而不同。
